The Sucu Music #NetLabel seems to have a number of releases exploring this "space reverb improvised guitar" style, here's another nice one:
Wow, a very thought-provoking talk about teaching programming; especially the part on reading code aloud by non-English-speaking learners: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1ib43q3uXQ
And quite well-done and fun to watch too!
A yet another free-falling object from the distant depths of archive.org's Netlabels collection, emanating with liquid guitar voices and blurred reminiscences:
Journal Shaming: Arabian Journal of Chemistry
My now stock response to Elsevier requests to referee papers in organic chemistry (I guess?)
I know nothing about this topic. You should be ashamed to send out
referee requests with so little vetting.
So far no response. There was a clue in the latest one though, it says "Dear David H Bremner". H is not my middle initial.
There is a DH Bremner who publishes in Chemical Engineering, but works somewhere in the UK. #Elsevier #BadJournal
I haven't switched linux distributions for a good while until two months ago, when I installed #NixOS on my main computer.
That inspired me to do a little write up about this system and its package-turned-configuration manager. Hopefully you'll find it interesting:
(Audio software was my initial use case for nix, now it manages my whole OS).
Some nice tiling images that are packaged in #Racket:
anti-golang propaganda on my part
Seems to resonate with what I was reading here (warning: read critically but patiently):
so proud to publish 'beepblip' - "Noise for Strings, Vol.2", her second #Kamizdat release.

Zoom privacy shenanigans (again)
According to this, when you try to uninstall the Zoom Windows app, it reads cookie data from Chrome, including information unrelated to Zoom - and writes a persistent cookie with a 10 year expiration date, in violation of the ePrivacy Directive.
#Fairphone just announced the 3+ phone. A new phone that's got backwards hardware compatibility with the old phone.
I have a fairphone 2 and it's super easy to repair. After 3 years, the camera module failed and this happened to a few people, so they actually got new cameras made to fit the phone, from a new assembly line, so they could keep supporting users with old phones. It took less than 5 minutes to replace the camera, using the a pocket knife.

It's good to know that in this fat synth sound:
The reverb plugin does like 75% of the sound:
...including pitch shifting polyphony etc.
I don't feel that dumb anymore with my primitive oscillators :)
